Summer Reads 2017 Challenge

SummerReads746books

 

I am joining the Summer Read 2017 Challenge.  This was originated in a terrific blog 746books please use the link above to find out all about the challenge.

This is actually the second year that I have taken the challenge but last year I tried for the full 20 books but found that it was really too much, although I did just about manage it!  So this year I have decided to take on the 10 books of Summer and have a reserve list should I find that I can manage a few more books.

My 10 books of Summer

The Last Bus to Woodstock (Morse 1) by Colin Dexter

A Great Reckoning (Gamache 12) by Louise Penny
